Focussing on my water this week - did good today and I'm hoping it brings back some energy because I have zero.

Mike - it sux but thats exactly how I feel - you nailed it lol

Just a quick update. Yesterday food wise was good. I stayed under 1700 calories, a big improvement. Water could have been better, but I fell asleep on the couch and don't like to drink too much before going to bed. Too many trips to the potty in the middle of the night if I do. However!! I only had one bottle of Diet Dew yesterday. I could have had more, but went with water at supper. Yay me. Okay. Busy busy day today. Probably won't be able to check in until later tonight.
Yesterday was a yes and no for goal number #2. I did what I could to keep her in line but she just wouldn't comply. I guess I can't give my lil sis too much of a hard time because I know she's going to have a great week this week!
Mike: 1) water (100oz/day) yes
2) keep Tori in line (yes & no)
It was 46 degrees when I got up to go swimming this morning (at an outdoor pool). The pool is heated, but it was chilly enough outside that I considered not going. I went, though, and was glad I did. And maybe I shivered off a few extra calories!
I saw a great poster yesterday. It said, "Procrastination. You're not just putting off the work. You're putting off the results."
Robin - I haven't heard of Skinny B cereal. Let us know how you like it.
Ian - good to see you. I don't get the paladin riddle at all.
Tori - you had a great day yesterday - keep it going. If we both do well this week, Mike can take credit for us both.
Kocia - if you get stuck on an extra activity, find something on youtube. There are all kinds of workouts, yoga, dance, etc. Epixi tried to get us doing Bollywood dancing. I tried it a couple of times - it was fun - but I'm a real klutz when it comes to dancing.
